Time for another sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You!! This one by Laura you are going to LOVE!! You are also going to love our sponsor...Starving Artistamps. I flipped the sketch to highlight the oh so sweet stamps from them. This card is very different for me. I NEVER work in neutrals. I had every intention of coloring the stamps in and using color as I always do. Once I had the images stamped, however, I decided I liked them as they were. It seemed fitting for that sweet scene of the most sublime and humble event in human history. So, I decided to keep the whole card in neutrals. I hope you enjoy. Now, I hope you will enjoy the next 12 days on my blog. Time for my GIVE AWAY note.
**GIVE AWAY NOTE** Starting tomorrow I will be celebrating the 12 DAYS of Christmas Cards with you. Each day I will post some of the cards I have made for this Christmas season. Don't worry, I won't post any of the ones you have already seen. I have had so much fun making them and wanted to share the joy with you all. Every day of the 12 Days of Christmas cards that you leave a comment your name will be put into a drawing. There will be a cash prize of $25 and also a lot of other goodies that I will put together. I will announce the winner on the 14th of December. There will be one other way to win an additional $25 cash prize + goodies. I'm feeling in a generous mood, so there will probably be a few other winners that I will announce along the way. I hope you will join me in the CELEBRATION and tell your friends! Hopefully you will receive a little inspiration along the way. Above are the card and sketch for 2S4Y and a sneak of one of tomorrow's cards.
“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to just be people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey…delays…sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.” ― Gordon B. Hinckley
